HONG KONG, December 1, 2010 - Hong Kong Aviation Capital ("HKAC"), a leading investor in global

Paul has previously been the Head of Risk for Global Aviation Asset
Management ("GAAM") Pty Ltd in Australia. In this role he was responsible for

operating leasing as part of a comprehensive risk management program.

"We are very pleased to have someone of Paul's caliber joining HKAC, and
see it as another important step in our development and continuing
international expansion," said Mathis Shinnick, CEO, Hong Kong Aviation

"Paul's wide experience in and knowledge of risk management will be an
asset to HKAC. His extensive knowledge of risk issues and lease operations
will help us rapidly consolidate our lease management business within the
Allco aviation portfolio acquired early in 2010. It will help us position
HKAC as a leader in the global aircraft leasing marketplace," Mr Shinnick

field," said Bharat Bhise, CEO of Bravia Capital Partners and investor in
HKAC. "His hiring is a further sign of our commitment to recruit the best
available talent in the industry."

industry player whereby our investor and lender base can take additional
comfort that we are focused on ensuring we are being compensated fairly for
the risk profile for every investment," Mr Bhise said.

Paul has an MBA from Seattle University in Washington and a BA in
international studies from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

HKAC secured a portfolio of nearly US$3 billion in assets this year by
